I agree with it to an extent, but what I dont get is what is the obsession with trying to turn the main subject of the photo, the train, into an amorphous feature, a streak, a blob of light coming out of a tunnel, these kind of photos generally do very little for me. For me the train should not be the only part of the photo, but it should be part of the photo.

Why does everyone like the Danneman's photos? Because they know how to balance the train and its surroundings (Also because we all want to take a trip to Montana)

Anyone can appreciate a photo like that, from the nut and bolts railfans foaming over the F45's (me) to someone who knows nothing about trains amazed at the scenery. Course it would be easier if we all lived in Montana.
